Just a quick hello this morning, as we will drive to Minneapolis - about 3 hours each way - to see the Twins game today. Will be a long day, but fun. We love baseball and like to get to at least one Twins game each summer. The tickets were free, so can't resist! Not much exercise today, but hopefully tomorrow will be a nice day for a long walk!

Good morning! Joy, have fun with your graduation celebration!! My youngest grandson graduated from pre-school Thursday.

I tried to sleep in this morning. I woke up to the wrens singing on the electrical wiring outside my window. I tried to go back to sleep and couldn't. Finally, I looked at my clock. 5:45am. Oh well. So much for being lazy.

I'm going to try to run this morning with a group. I can tolerate it if I take tramadol. So, if this is going to be my new arthritis normal, then I'll do what I have to do to keep up my level of activity. We'll see what happens today.

Good Morning All, Busy family weekend. Need to get off here and start some food prep for DGS's graduation TODAY! High School Grad gets a party! Graduation at 1 and party at 5 it will be a long busy day. Party is at DD's house. Hoping the weather will allow us to be inside and out. Yesterday was great. Morning graduation into High School, lunch out, home early afternoon. Dinner out with a friend and movie after. Yes, Jeri; we went and saw Mad Max. Makes me want to go back and see the originals again. Ticket taker has seen this one 6 X; never saw the originals. He was too young! emoticon

Hi there girls
Joy emoticon for DGD's graduation! Hope it went well. You must be SO proud- and rightly so.
Jeri take care of yourself hun. sorry to hear you're not up to par.
Judy sounds like a wonderful weekend ahead. Lovely that your friend has asked you to play.
Lynette I understand but I reckon your girls will soon suss them out for themselves and better that than have you tell them and have them thinking you're bitter and being spiteful. What goes around comes around..............Just be supportive as always of your girls, they'll see given time who's taking care of their interests. emoticon Loved your slver lining, but take care of yourself.
Susan I love the heat too LOL.
Cat have a great weekend.

Hmmm.........haven't see Anne for a while on here, I'll go check she's okay.

Lovely day here, determined- despite my nodding head (so irritating) - to go for a walk and get a workout in. Need to stay positive.
Have a great weekend, I'll be hitting the sun lounger later LOL

LJ, I remember that fear and fearing that the "new wife" would make them a family unit and more attractive to the kids. Nope, didn't happen; there is KARMA and I didn't have to do a thing. Without me in the picture to keep their white knight's armor polished it didn't take long to tarnish. Sad, I actually feel bad for the current wife. The kids don't, I may be the only one in the family that gets along with her. Not friends with him or her but can be friendly; I was not going to be cut off from my kids. In time they have become more and more distant. NW has no interest in being close with anyone connected to his former life. Best thing you can do for you and THEM is to be healthy and happy! It brings good things, karma works both ways. emoticon

P.S. You have no idea how many of us married in the '60's choreographed and scheduled the great men that our husbands appeared to be. I don't see that as much today. Then, it was part of a wife's "job".

stopping by for a dose of positivity, which I need this morning. Sucker-punched last night, finding out that my girls are going to see their biological and his new wife, a loathsome pair of liars/cheats/thieves that I wish would be shunned wholeheartedly by everyone with morals and values, especially my children...........
So I've had nothing to eat since this sort of thing makes me queasy. Trying to pull up my big girl panties and get back on the carousel. Silver lining is that my weight always drops when these things happen: thankful for small blessings.

The weekend is here! My son will be coming home tonight, as he has a baseball game tomorrow afternoon. Hubby and I are actually going to Minneapolis tomorrow for a Twins game, then on the way home we'll go through the town my son's game is in just about the time that game is starting, so will stop and see his game. On Sunday morning after I play at my own church, I am playing at another church because a friend's kids' baby is being baptized so they asked me to play for the service. That church is so small and they don't have their own organist and only get "live" music two Sundays a month. I think if I leave now I can make it to work between rain showers, so I'm off!

Good morning. Not much going on. I tried to run last night. It turned into a two mile rimp (run/limp). I won't try that again for another few days. I'm glad it's Friday. Short week. I want to be lazy this weekend.

A beautiful day at the range and lunch by the water. That's a wonderful senior moment!
It's that busy time of year with graduations and weddings and showers, not to mention the yard work (gardening to CAZ!).
Enjoy your evenings.

Jeri, I do believe we have earned the right to be crabby in our old age, right?? It's called Seniority... or Senior Citizenship... or Senior something. Speaking of which, hubby and I are going to be watching a webinar on Social Security benefits tonight that his 401K provider is putting on. Hopefully will get some useful information for the coming years so we can plan our transition to retirement.

Joy hope you feel a little easier this morning.Hope you had an enjoyable lunch catching up with your friend.
MN hope you got your walk in.
Jeri some people!!!!! My bug-bear is kids skateboarding in supermarkets- yes it's half term and they're creating hell!
Lynette it's nice to see you hun, sometimes I don't talk, just wave. Good to have you on the thread.
Cat glad you enjoyed your bowling.

Lovely day here and I slept better last night so my neck is "behaving" more today. A walk I think and some light ST then..........who knows emoticon

LJ, whatever works for you. We do like having you here when you are1
As with everyone, I must say. It is difficult for everyone to live their real lives and have time to chat with SP. It's just good to know that you peak in from time to time and join in from time to time.
I bowled today and enjoyed it.
Jeri, you get full agreement from me.

JERI, You've hit one of my buttons! I love kids; but I don't like people of any age that ignore the rules at the expense of others. I also don't like having to step in and do someone else's job. No staff at the pool? Guards? ANYONE to enforce the rules?? Thankfully the Y I used when swimming a lot was better managed than that; but the weight room was a different story. Kids weren't supposed to be in there at all! No one monitored that and it was the LAST thing I wanted to do after teaching in middle school all day. Glad you got your swim in.

Good morning. I started the day with 1000 yards in the pool. There is a woman who goes to our Y who is a perfectly nice woman, but she and her kids take up soooo much space!! She used to take her tween daughter into the adult locker room, and they would both leave their clothes thrown everywhere, forcing people to step over their giant mess of clothing. It's an adult locker room (clearly states 19 and over), and 18 and under belong in the family locker room. Finally, the director of the Y made the girl go into the correct locker room. But this morning at the pool, she had all 3 of her children (tween daughter, two younger sons) in the pool, each in his/her own lane -- dog paddling!! Taking up the lap lanes with kids that don't know how to swim! Well, the mornings in the pool are very busy with people swimming laps before work. There is another section of the pool for people who don't swim laps. The kids had drug out all sorts of floats and pool noodles. And when we all got together and gave the mom the evil eye, she scooted her children over into the area where they belonged, but they left their giant messes!! Ugghhh... I'm not sure why some people think that everyone is as in love with their children as they are. I love kids being active and having fun. I'm not a kid hater. But if your kid doesn't know how to swim, get him out of the lap lane and over where he belongs. And if your kid is not old enough to be in the adult locker room, please don't bring her in there. If I wanted to be with playing children, I would go play with my grandchildren. And please clean up their messes. I told my daughter that I am a gymtimidator. She told me I am crabby in my old age. Maybe I am. Bwahaha

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, We did get a little rain yesterday and every little bit helps. It's a beautiful morning but I'm hoping for more rain this afternoon. Sticking with lighter yardwork today. Still having too many aches and hoping it's not something beyond that fall earlier this month. I'm used to my hands aching when I garden. Just don't want anything to settle in permanently. Meeting a friend for a late lunch this afternoon. I still can't make up my mind about yoga; just not sure my ankles and knees can take it. May at least go over before class and visit.

Lynette, I totally agree!!!!!!!!!! The optimism here is a magnet for me and very refreshing.

Susan, Your activity level is an inspiration!

Patti, I love your current profile picture! A familiar scene here in the morning. :)

Cat, Been there, done that! My deck currently needs cleaning desperately! Alas, it's not even on "my list".

Judy, I hope you slept well. Who knew that Pickle Ball would be such a gift?! Go girl!!

CAZ, Hang in there! emoticon

Jeri, I hope today is a better day. I know you've been dealing with this a long time. Be well.

Better get into my day; the longer I'm up the better I feel.

Sure was hard going back to work today after 4 days off, and a very busy, stress-filled day it was. I must say I got a wee bit cranky, but by the time I took the dog for a 1-mile walk, came home and ate a grilled pork chop, spinach salad and half a baked sweet potato, then went and plays some fast games of pickleball, my mood is much improved and I think I'll sleep well tonight! Take care of those feet, gals!

It's been a great day for weather today with plenty of sunshine and heat. I went power walking for 7.5 km's after dinner and feel awesome.

Jeri I hope your foot is feeling better soon and Patti, I do hope you are okay after your spill on the sidewalk today.

Summer is just beginning and we all have to be careful that we stay safe and injury free.

JERI, I understand; there's something purely peaceful about being in the woods.

Good morning. I'm thinking if I were a wild animal, I would have gnawed my foot off by now. But there's no use in complaining about something I can't change, so I will put up with it and go on about my business. It hurts whether or not I'm active, so I will still get stuff done. I suppose at some point I will just become accustomed to it.

After a rather uneventful weekend of my husband planting trees and flowers, I finally convinced him to take me somewhere out of the house. We'd gone to the movies Saturday, but I'd hoped to be somewhere in the woods, at least for a few hours. He was reluctant to take me anywhere like that due to my foot. I told him by that point my mood was a whole lot more important than my foot pain, and I needed to be in the woods. So yesterday evening we went to Blue Licks State Park. We only stayed about an hour. The park was almost empty, and we were on some really easy trails. Tall grass, trees and hills, and we visited the burial site of the soldiers who were killed in the Battle of Blue Licks (last battle of the Revolutionary War). It was a nice, peaceful time in the woods.

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All,
Patti, I'm glad you are OK; falls are always scary!
Thank you Caz. Yes, my feet are still a little sore but the braces fit comfortably under my garden shoes yesterday yesterday and I did fine. Swelling is gone but still have a little soreness; uneven ground is the worse and I will continue with the braces outside until all the soreness is gone.
We got a lot done yesterday and the yard looks great! Boys had the lawn mowed and trimmed before I got there. If the lawn doesn't look good it doesn't matter what you do to the gardens!
Beds cleared, pruned planted and mulched. Mulch works wonders! Beautiful day today and I'll be back out in my yard. Smiles.

Hi Everybody!
Wishing you a blessed Memorial Day for those in the U.S.

Cat, Congrats on paying off your house. What a great milestone!
Jeri, Sorry your dr. was not good about getting back to you. Hope you get some relief soon.
Patti, sorry the dog sitting is so challenging.
Caz, Glad the loft is coming along well.
Judy, Wonderful news that you got a good report from the oncologist.

I was pleased on the results of wearing a heart monitor after my colonoscopy. Turns out my heart just does an extra beat from time to time. So that is nothing to worry about.

I saw something very encouraging in our paper. Our regular family doctor has just been selected as medical director of a non-evasive weight loss clinic at the hospital. That includes monitoring of food diaries, exercise, and visits with a psychologist. And lifetime follow up.
Finally someone has realized that some people need to look at emotional issues in order to lose weight.
It has been a nice weekend. We bought some plants, hiked at a brand new park, and spent the day at a reconstructed fort from the War of 1812.
have a great day!

in shifts, I have read thru posts to catch up on all thr news. I am finding that being out of the house more in good weather means i am not keeping up with my sparking. My weight is up a few pounds even though I am getting in quite a bit of movement.
Hope all American sparkers are having a wonderful holiday weekend.

Good Morning All, Off soon to DD's for a working visit. Going to help spiff up the yard for a graduation party next weekend. Will be working with DGS's, mostly in an advisory capacity as they are not quite trusted to know which plants stay and which weeds go. :) They will be doing the heavy stuff as my ankles are taking a long time mending. Easy does it.
Enjoy the day everyone!

Happy Memorial Day my American pals, such an important holiday.

Spent hours in the garden just lazing yesterday and watching birds feeding, so relaxing.

The loft is coming along well now; the old hatch opening is now plastered up so we're getting there. Won't be long before I can rifle through the boxes, have a chuck out and a yard sale and then clear the bedroom of the boxes back to the loft.
Will be so pleased when that's done LOL

Bank Holiday here today so off for my walk early to avoid the crowds, have a good week all emoticon

Back home after my trip to Fargo. Good report from the oncologist, so that was a relief! Had a good time and got to enjoy my daughter's new house and had some time with my son. Today plan to take the flowers to the cemetery, attend a couple graduation receptions, and then go back to the lake to spend the night at the cabin. Cat, congrats on that last payment!

JERI, Go to the Dollar Store and pick up some toy plastic snakes and drape them in/on your blueberry shrubs; should keep the birds away. Worth a try. Seems to work on my strawberries; unfortunately not much is working on the squirrels!

Joy, if you go, watch it in 3D. I don't think it would be nearly as enjoyable in a regular format.

Today is flower gardening day. We've got two of the grandkids over, working to clear out a bunch of crap in the flower beds. Every time we think we have it all, more weeds pop up. We have to figure out a netting to put over the blueberries. We don't want the birds to eat them. This is the first year we've had any sort of blueberries.

I came across this funny video the other day, with older people's voices in young kids. This is so much like the conversations in our house. Watch this and be entertained. It's too funny! I don't know if the link will work. I've tried to post it several times, but it keeps saying the page isn't available. Hmmm...

I liked Mad Max. It's got lots of ugly mutant people in it, which I normally don't like. But this movie worked. The plot is basically an evil ruler kept some women as breeders, and they got tired of it and escaped. They ended up with Max, and fought off the bad guys. Lots of fight scenes, explosions, some bloody stuff. I was surprised I enjoyed it, because I normally do not enjoy movies with mutant people and lots of explosions.

Cat, that's great!!!!

My husband and I went for a 3 mile run this morning. My foot is still extremely sore, and is swollen and red. Then we went to see Mad Max in 3D, and I ate way too much popcorn. You know, if I could turn back the clock, I would make myself look like Charlize Theron in that movie. She looks amazing!!

Have a great time with the family, Judy. Hope the move part isn't too much work for you.
Patty, breaks from electronics can be stressful or relaxing. Good luck.
Jeri and Joy, have good times with family.
Everyone have a pleasant evening.
I am slugging it this afternoon. Had to go in for blood work for the oncologist and then a mid morning breakfast that I regret. Ugh. Salad and sandwich for dinner tonight.

Enjoy the long weekend! I'm in Fargo today - leaving shortly for a follow-up checkup with my radiation oncologist. After that, lunch with my son and then some shopping. Will help daughter &sil move into their new house this evening. It's located a block away from a beautiful big park along the river with lots of walking paths, so hoping they will take a break long enough for us to walk through the park tonight. It's a beautiful day here!

Hi all. A busy day with the only real activity was my walk. Got a bunch of stuff done here, though.
Jeri, sorry about your dilemma with doctor and your feet. Keep the faith.
Joy, good for your ankles. Take care.
CAZ, what's a 'little' rain, right?
Everyone, have a wonderful evening.

Checking in on a rainy Thursday. I expected to hear from my rheumatologist today. He's only in the office on Thursday, but he obviously didn't see fit to at least give me a call back after I left him a phone message and sent him an e-mail. Not even a call from the nurse asking about what type of medicine I would like to try. Oh well. We've got til the end of the day, I suppose. It's not quite 2:00. Their clinic is over by noon, though. rrrrrrr.... I've decided to just ignore the foot pain and go on about my business. My feet will hurt whether I'm active or sedentary. May as well be active, right? I read my x-ray report (right foot only). I've got the standard bunion and hallux valgus (or whatever it is) deformity on my big toe. I've got a heel spur. And I've got diffuse bone mineral loss due to inflammatory arthritis. And soft tissue swelling due to inflammatory arthritis. I can't remember what else. I guess my feet will have to burn forever.

So... on to other things... My daughter (the newly pregnant one) is out in Las Vegas on business. She is still taking shots in her butt to help her with her pregnancy. Her husband had been giving her the shots, but he is not accompanying her this trip. So her coworker (a woman) is doing it for her this week. I think that's so funny!! That's going above and beyond. Bwahahaha

She woke up one morning and threw away all her excuses...

Good Morning All, Busy day today; hair appointment, grocery shopping, friend coming over for a visit and to see the gardens, and Thursday Night Live downtown tonight--depending on the weather. Pleased with the patio table I got yesterday. Ankles are a lot better, swelling down. I will continue to wear the braces for awhile but now with the swelling down they do fit in my shoes better. Cool today. Be well.

Hi all.
Good to know, Joy. I have a trick ankle and will keep these in mind for the future.
I bowled again today and did pretty good. My strength did ebb and flow during the two hours but that's okay.
Hope you all have a stellar evening.

Marilyn (and all), for some really quality windchimes that are spendy but worth the money if you like windchimes, check out Music of the Spheres. They have about 6 different voices (higher to lower), and each voice has about 7 different tunings. I'm too cheap to splurge for them, but my kids got mine for me as a Christmas gift a couple years ago. I've been a bit lazy and eating too much this week. Need to get back on the path!

Good Morning All,
Had a busy but really good day yesterday. Found a table and chairs for under the fan on my patio that I love at a VERY reasonable price! Table was from a $1099 set, but was a maverick on clearance--didn't have chairs. I bought chairs I like better, separately, and got the whole set for around $260! Getting the table today and it's already assembled! Need to get the rest of that mulch off my patio! Dear SIL is helping me pick it up today; big, seats 6 comfortably.
Swelling is down on my feet and ankles. Still wearing the brace as they are still a little sore. I am going to see what I can do outside today; will wear shoes over the braces. If it's uncomfortable, I'll stop. Goal is to not stress them. Soon I will start rehab exercises to strengthen them but not until no longer sore.
Make it a great day everyone!

CAT they are ACE adjustable braces with straps that wrap around the ankle and elastic straps that go around the arch of your foot. Keep the foot from slipping sideways, comfortable, not a boot. Can and they recommend wearing under shoes but I found that made them rub and have been wearing them with my garden clogs. Can walk and drive fine that way; the clogs have good arch support. Pricey, around $25 each but Rite Aide had them buy one get half off a second one. I think they were worth it to protect me from twisting my ankle while healing. Swelling is going down, I will try with shoes again tomorrow. I looked at the elastic ones and thought they might be good for support but uncomfortable on a swollen foot. I'm pleased with these. Ran errands today and was on my feet longer than planned. Bought a patio set for under my new fan under the deck. Bargain price! :)

Marilyn, I am hoping your dh gets the medical intervention he needs to get 100% well.
Joy, what type of ankle braces? Everday easy to get around in type or walking cast type?
My right eye isn't ready for cataract removal yet. Apparently my left eye needs to have a laser treatment to get rid of the old lens sac from the cataract removal last year. Very minor procedure.

Hi Everybody!
Jeri, That is great news about your daughter now expecting. I am so happy for you and the family!
Sorry you are having so much foot pain. I hope you can get your medicine tweaked so you feel better.
Anne, Congrats on your anniversary!
Joy, I Hope you are on the mend after the encounter with the fence. You are a tough cookie for sure.
Susan, I am glad you had a lovely day to report. Good for you!
Caz, It's nice to year you are helping Vicki with some posters for the charity. Good job!
Hi Patti! Hope your week is going well.
Cat, hope your garage sale went well.

DH had a check up after the migraine surgery. He has had some reduction, but they are not gone. The dr. said this result is not good enough and may be tweaking something.

We have had some nice weather to get out and walk. Also some time to sit out on the porch and enjoy the wind chime we put up. I got tired of the cheap ones that didn't really chime much, so I invested in a quality one, and it has made all the difference.
We are really enjoying watching the NBA playoffs. Lebron James has led Cleveland to victory in the first 2 rounds. They are plagued with injuries, but I think they have a good chance of making it to the finals.
Have a great Tuesday!

Marilyn
